Season’s Greetings

Editorial The 2015 Congress of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences will address the issue of Trust in Public Administration. Academics and practitioners from all over the world may discuss this theme in the most various angles but still, however, in direct or indirect relationship with the Public Service. The notion of Trust, beyond this specific vision, keeps coming in the current social environment: Trust in human relationships, Trust in the markets, Trust in the future, etc. At the time when humanitarian, societal, security, economic crisis or other seem to come from all walks of our planet, it is becoming increasingly clear that this notion is a necessary precondition for more smiling tomorrows. A popular adage «An umbrella cannot stop the rain, but helps us to stay under the rain. Trust cannot bring success but it gives the power to face any challenge!» However, as taught La Rochefoucauld - Douceauville, «Trust is earned but cannot be required”. In other words, it appears that Trust is the result of a relationship based on mutual respect, on respect of policies in the administration and to the citizen, on respect felt by citizens in the administration and the politics and finally, on the same feeling of the administration towards the political power and administered . Any attempt to reform and progress which eludes this fundamental aspect is ultimately doomed to failure. Therefore, in the beginning of the year 2015, we encourage you to face the future with Trust and determination. Dare to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow with the conviction that if we trust each other, we will be better armed to control them.
